Congratulations to Limor Fried, aka Lady Ada, for being name named Entrepreneur Magazine’s Entrepreneur of 2012!

I can't think of someone more deserving, and I'm sure many of my fellow element14 Community members feel the same way.  I really admire Limor and the company she founded, Adafruit Industries, for being committed to making cool products for makers of all ages and skill levels.  As a strong advocate of Open Source Hardware, Adafruit also makes their designs and code available for everyone to learn from and even improve upon.  They also have an outstanding collection of electronics tutorials and videos.


I was thrilled when element14 started carrying Adafruit’s accessories for Raspberry Pi.  I wrote about some of the cool projects you can make with Adafruit and the Raspberry Pi.  And I'm excited to have learned that there will be three new Adafruit products for the Pi coming to element14 in January.
